Sports Awards

Sports Awards are back! Which clubs and individuals have gone above and beyond for sport this past year?

There are many awards to choose from, so this is a great opportunity to recognise the achievements and hard work of those clubs and individuals who have given their all this year. So, discuss as an exec what awards you would like to submit a nomination for. The awards will be presented at Sports Ball on the 16th June. Please don't worry if you're a winner and you can't attend Sports Ball, we will make sure you still get the recognition you deserve!

Nominations were reviewed by the VP Sports and Sport Committee and are now closed. See who got shortlisted below. For any queries or questions, please contact the VP Sports at sports@warwicksu.com.
